Paired with some of the other outtakes from WOTF this is lovely. Let it Grow does, yes, have some clickage going on, but the WRS Part I, instrumental, is astonishingly beautiful and a true treasure. Bobby's greatest composition and legacy. I love this stuff.
These are alternate takes than a rehearsal, and the performances are perfect. The sound is also excellent, excepting some clicks at the beginning of Let It Grow. Weather Report Suite is done without vocal as an instrumental, and works well. The vocals on Let it Grow and China Doll are top notch. This is a better China Doll than the released version on Mars Hotel.
